Hello stampers - Nancy here today with a bright and cheery card!This adorable image and sentiment is called Monster Mash set and can be found here by itself or part of the Curiosities Set #1 here.
I love the smile of pure joy on this monster and feel that we all should dance like no one is watching!!!
I colored the image with copics and used a curved border die on the side to mimic the curves of the tutu. Small flower dies and a swiss dot embossing folder finishes everything off. I used bright colors of yellow, orange and pink - this is one of those images where you can go bright and bold with color.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hop on over to the IBFS store
to check out all the Curiosity stamps, as well as thousands of other stamps.
Map patterned paper was trimmed, edged with Hickory Smoke Distress
ink, then matted onto silver metallic cardstock. A scrap of the silver cardstock was die-cut with a stitched fishtail labels from and a Key Corner
die. The sentiment sticker sheet was added to the silver fishtail label, which was then adhered to the card front. The Special Delivery Budgie
image panel was adhered to the card front, which was then mounted on a white card.
Thanks for visiting today!

Hi everyone! It's Monica from Taylormadecards4u.
I am here today to share with you a fun card using the stamp Luncheon Meat
and a background technique using Distress inks.
To create this background, I smeared some distress inks and oxides onto a craft sheet and spritzed it with some water. Using a small acetate sheet, I dabbed up the water and dabbed the sheet onto some white card stock. Once I was happy with the look, I used my blending tool and faded jeans distress ink to add blue tones to the background where white was showing through.
I stamped the image onto the distress inked card stock then again onto some white card stock. I used copic colors to color up the fish images and fussy cut them using my tonic scissors.
I popped up the fish using some foam dots and added some clear nuvo drops where the bubbles were stamped.
This is a really easy technique and makes for a great background.
Thanks for stopping by.
It seems as if we've been posting a lot of flowers here on the I Brake For Stamps blog! What can I say, Summer has hit! I'm coming to you today with yet another card with flowers on it. ;) I used the Large Floral Border stamp set to create this bright, fun card!I started by stamping my image onto Tim Holtz water color paper with Versamark Watermark ink, then I sprinkled some gold embossing powder and heated it up. Using various Zig Clean Clear Watercolor Markers I painted the image.
|I LOVED how the light was reflecting on the water.|
Once I had painted my whole image I cut out a masking of the stamped image and splattered gold paint on my card. This step SHOULD have been done after the sentiment was finished, but I wasn't thinking ahead. Because of that, I had to be careful of spreading this gold paint when I highlighted my sentiment with more paint.
My sentiment was one I rifled through my stash to find. It is
from a stamp company that is no longer in business, but the sentiment worked perfectly for this card! I had gold embossed this as well, but it needed to pop out a touch from my card panel. To achieve this, I used some of the same Zig Markers to outline the main sentiment portion. I used the lighter pink and gently brushed it over the smaller portion of the sentiment. The result is subtle, yet it helps just enough.
This was a quick and easy card to produce, and it was extremely emotionally fulfilling. I can not wait to send this to someone, I think it would really brighten their day!!! There are SO MANY "flower" stamps on the I Brake For Stamps site! Some are incredibly detailed and others are elegantly simple. Beginner artists as well as extremely experienced will find something wonderful to delight their day!Thank you for reading, I hope I have inspired you!
